The hardest part of missionary life, hands down, is being so far from your family. Thankfully, my family is so close, but Jacki’s is still 3,000 miles away. That’s been a little hard for us. So it was a welcomed treat when Jacki’s mom, dad, and younger sister decided to come and visit us for two weeks. From elephant and ostrich riding to waterfall treks and hilltribe visits, we packed as much into those weeks as we could think of. It was beautiful seeing Jessi bond with some of the kids from a nearby orphanage and Rick and Jeanette connecting with members of our local church. We’re hoping this will become a regular visit.
